The Biden administration chose not to renew expiring UN sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile and drone programs in October, shortly after Hamas attacked Israel with Iranian backing.

This allowed Iran’s restrictions on these weapons to legally end.

Critics argued this has empowered Iran, as seen by their unprecedented direct missile assault on Israel over the weekend, launching over 300 drones and missiles despite the IDF intercepting nearly all of them.

Israel responded that it will continue defending itself and build a regional coalition to impose consequences on Iran for such attacks.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that Iran’s “development, procurement, and proliferation of missiles and missile-related technology remains one of the greatest challenges to international peace and security,” vowing to “utilize every tool at our disposal to counter Iran’s development, procurement, and proliferation of missiles, UAVs, and other dangerous weapons.”

The lapse in sanctions is seen as undermining pressure on Iran and increasing risks from its advancement of weapons that threaten stability in the Middle East.

“We will build a regional coalition and exact the price from Iran in the fashion and timing that is right for us,” war cabinet minister Benny Gantz said.
